i don’t say it often enough, but to all you lovely people who decided to follow me, thank you. it means the absolute world to me.
this should be on everybody’s blog, no matter what kind of blog it is.
the sad thing is i’m showing almost every sign on that card.
Wow, reading these actually shocks me..
This is incredibly important. A classmate of mine committed suicide this weekend and it makes me incredibly sad to think she could have been helped if people had only known what to look for. Please seek help if you or a loved one are showing any of these signs, nothing is worse than a life lost to suicide, knowing it could have been prevented.
Forever reblogI lost my best friend due to suicide. Maybe, if he would have seen this, he could have been stopped. You can make a difference, even of it’s just a little. I will never scroll past this.

I mean, there were folkloric heroes like Robin Hood before the Scarlet Pimpernel, but they didn’t really do the secret identity — people might not have known Robin Hood’s real identity but he wasn’t out living a double life and his costume was just what he and his buds wore in the forest, whereas the Pimpernel was actually doing the exact same thing as Bruce Wayne (pampered aristocrat by day, avenging hero by night)
also I wanna point out that the Scarlet Pimpernel was actually the leader of a league of twenty people also living double lives — Baroness Orczy also invented the first superhero team
Also The Scarlet Pimpernel is goddamned amazing and if you’ve never read it you’re missing out.
first computer code then science fiction now this we need to kick those fake nerd boys out
shepard’s expression in that last gif is because he just knows that’s going to be all over the ship in no time, everybody talking about his pheromones. james is going to make a pheromoan joke and joker’s going to be all ‘you can play it cool, commander, but you know what? the pheromones don’t lie’ and even dr. chakwas is going to cough a polite pheromones into her hand when shepard least expects it. and basically javik does this on purpose, like supplying primitives with straight lines they can’t let go is what he’s really here for. (damn prothean sense of humor looking so much like pure evil.)
(After deciding to transcribe the dialogue of Horizon, I threw my dolly out at how bad I considered the writing to be, and after discussion it was decided ‘why don’t we write this how we think it should have gone down’. And so this fic was born. Originally called New Horizons, real life struck, and I forgot the original deadline so I’m releasing it now.)
"No!" The mechanic Delan cried, stumbling into the yard to join Akeelah Shepard, Garrus Vakarian and Mordin Solus as they watched the immense Collector Ship retreat in a roar and tongues of flame. "Don’t let them get away!"
Shepard blew out a sigh, only sparing him a glance as the vessel became a burning star in the sky, getting ever smaller.
"I’m sorry, they’re gone now." She closed her eyes, feeling guilt sweep over her. More lives I couldn’t save, her thoughts noted bitterly. She didn’t dare entertain the one that was trying to point out that they hadn’t seen a certain someone during their sweep of Horizon. “There’s no way we can catch that ship.”
Delan’s eyes were wide and frantic, and he paced back and forth, waves of anxiety flowing from him and mingling with Shepard’s, which coiled tightly in her gut.
"I’m sorry. I didn’t want to end like this, but I did everything I could." She assured as best she could, feeling Garrus and Mordin approach her in comfort.
"More than most, Shepard." Garrus spoke, Mordin nodding his assent.
"Forced retreat. Collectors not prepared for resistance. Likely parts of colony saved."
"Shepard?" The mechanic hesitated. "I know that name." His eyes were narrowed when he turned to her. "Supposed to be some sort of big shot Alliance hero, aren’t you?"
Shepard tensed slightly, ready to endure some more anti-Alliance spiel, when Garrus’s mandibles opened, and he muttered ‘Shepard, your left’ just loud enough for her to hear. She glanced to the said direction, just in time to see a tall, olive-skinned man in dark armour emerge from the corner of one of the prefabs, the sudden rush of recognition making her heart miss a beat and her breath catch in her lungs. Relief crashed over her soon after. He’s alive. He’s safe. They didn’t take him…

This is actually true and could make a difference
I can’t remember where I heard this, but someone once said that defending a position by citing free speech is sort of the ultimate concession; you’re saying that the most compelling thing you can say for your position is that it’s not literally illegal to express. (xkcd)
